Crack down airs tonight (November 25) with a live show from the Amica Mutual Pavilion in Providence, Rhode Island. This is the finale Crack down episode during the three week build up mod The Survivor Serieswhich takes place tomorrow night (Nov. 26).
This must be the return of Becky Lynch
Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair brings her WarGames team (Asuka, Alexa Bliss, Mia Yim) to Crack down tonight to name the final member of their team for tomorrow night’s pay-per-view match against Damage CTRL, Nikki Cross and Rhea Ripley. Belair hyped up this announcement by saying you won’t be disappointed with the reveal.
This means that it shouldn’t be Candice LeRae who has trouble with Damage CTRL, but who isn’t established as an important wrestler on Raw. There is simply no reason to build up anticipation and wait Crack down what a big reveal if the answer is just Candice.
Let’s just get to the point; the most likely woman to be named by Belair is Becky Lynch. Lynch has been sidelined with a separated shoulder since early August, and enough time has passed where her return is plausible. It also makes kayfabe sense for her to be on Belair’s team since she stood side by side with Bianca at SummerSlam when Damage CTRL debuted and Bayley’s heel faction later injured Becky backstage.
Some fans are hoping that the mystery partner could be Sasha Banks, Charlotte Flair or Naomi. They would all fit Bianca’s hype level for the big reveal, but none of them fit the story as well as Lynch does. Reporting in the wrestling media also indicates that it will be Lynch, while these other missing stars are only speculative guesses.
The stage is set for The Man’s return to be announced tonight and get everyone buzzing about tomorrow’s WarGames match at The Survivor Series. Let’s see how it all develops.
The rest of the title scene
WWE Tag Team Champions The Usos match Drew McIntyre & Sheamus tonight in a match to decide which team has the advantage in the men’s WarGames match at The Survivor Series. It doesn’t look like part-time WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns is announced Crack downso it may be up to Solo Sikoa and Sami Zayn to fend off Kevin Owens and the Brawling Brutes if all hell breaks loose between the WarGames teams at ringside.
Crack down Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey teams up with Shayna Baszler tonight to take on the duo of Raquel Rodriguez and Shotzi. Shotzi challenges Rousey for the title at The Survivor Series and is coming off a win over Baszler last week.
The semi-final round in Crack down The WC takes place tonight. The winner of this tournament earns a future title shot against Intercontinental Champion GUNTHER. The two semi-final matches are Butch vs. Santos Escobar and Ricochet vs. Braun Strowman. The former match could see the involvement of The Bloodline in an attempt to turn Butch over, whereas the latter match is spiced up by Strowman’s bad tweets about flippy flippers. It is clear that GUNTHER is afraid of Braun and would rather see someone else win.
Other things to watch out for
– Bray Wyatt offered an apology to LA Knight last week, but the loud-mouthed douchebag responded by punching Bray in the face multiple times. Knight later paid for his idiocy when he was mysteriously accosted backstage. Is Knight in any shape to show up tonight after what happened to him? Will Wyatt be able to keep his violent urges under control if someone else pushes his buttons?
– Madcap Moss tried to follow Emma’s advice, but he still fell short in a one-on-one match against Karrion Kross. Will Moss try his luck again in a rematch with Kross or is he looking for a new opponent to get back into the winning column?
– The Viking Raiders and Sarah Logan returned to WWE a few weeks ago and beat the hell out of Hit Row. Hit Row responded with a weak diss track. I don’t think that will be enough to stop the Raiders from kicking their ass again tonight if there is a confrontation.
– Liv Morgan has not planned anything The Survivor Seriesso maybe she’ll take out her extreme frustrations on a lower card wrestler like Lacey Evans or Xia Li.
– Will we get an update on Rey Mysterio after the little shithead Dominik and Rhea Riley invaded his home and attacked his injured foot on Thanksgiving?
What will you be looking for? Crack down?
